NFL Free Agency: Charles Woodson Wouldn't Mind Playing for Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions could also potentially be involved in the Charles Woodson sweepstakes.

In a radio interview with WTKA, Woodson claimed there was “no question” that he would be open to playing for them.

Woodson currently has offers from the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos.

According to his agent, Woodson does not plan on retiring and will be playing somewhere next season. However, he is frustrated by the process and presumably why it has taken so long for teams to show interest in him.

A 14-year veteran, Woodson was drafted by the Raiders and spent eight seasons in Oakland before moving on to Green Bay. He was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1998.

He has received numerous accolades throughout his career as an eight-time Pro Bowler, seven-time All-Pro member, and Super Bowl champion. Woodson was also the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2009.Woodson’s productivity has declined in recent seasons, however. He appeared in just seven games last, recording 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one interception.Woodson was released by the Packers earlier this offseason.

Will Woodson spurn his former team and bolt for Denver or Detroit? So far, it seems like Raiders fans sure would love to have Woodson return to where it all started for him.
